Reston Association to Hold Community Meeting on Future of Lake Thoreau

Residents can learn more about the future of Lake Thoreau pool at a special community meeting on Monday, Nov. 4 at Reston Association headquarters (12001 Sunrise Valley Drive).

RA staff will update the community on safety concerns highlighted by a recent engineering report, as well as how the association plans to address structural problems of the nearly 40-year-old facility.

The 2019 report found a number of structural cracks in the facility’s retaining wall. A representative from Kimley Horn, an engineering firm that conducted a 2017 study on the pool, will also attend the meeting.

Members will also have an opportunity to ask questions after the presentation by RA staff.

At a recent meeting, RA’s Board of Directors and staff indicated the pool will likely be closed for the 2020 season. The association expects to engage with the community to determine future plans for the facility.
